I did not really need them since I have the previous box sets as well but for $25 I said what the heck. The transfers are pretty sharp!!

My all time favorite Bond film has to be For Your Eyes Only followed closely by The Spy Who Loved Me. Because of my age I tend to prefer Roger Moore as Bond since I grew up watching him be Bond. It all slight though since I enjoy all the Bond films.

In fact my wife is a big Bond fan as well and I proposed to her when watching The Spy Who Loved Me.

Had some of the boxed sets in my hand at Best Buy when with were $25.00 and never bought em. Kept thinking about the BDs but I cannot see how anyone could go wrong at that price.

Strange that you pointedly would go for the worst Bond since The Man with the Golden Gun.

Dalton did not translate well on screen. He was a smallish, wimp. Gald they dumped him.

I thought Dalton was pretty good in The living Daylights (but License to Kill was an awfully written film), and definitely had a menace that was missing since the Connery era. And I don't really think his height was to much of an impediment.

Dalton for Bond is like Frank Langella for Dracula not enough macho for the role.

I thought Dalton was 6'2? That's Connery's height,and taller than Brosnan and Moore.If any of the Bonds are 'short',it's Craig.He's what, 5'10 tops?

Too many systems and games....not enough time or money!

I may pick up For Your Eyes Only when it goes on sale.

Believe it or not the ones I'm most interested in are View To A Kill and the two Timothy Dalton ones (Licence To Kill, Living Daylights).

According to everything I can find Dalton was the largest Bond, Craig the smallest.

But he looked and act as if he was on the other side of the fence (nothings against that mind you). I just feel, and that is a highly personnal opinion, that he just didn't project the same macho image that the other did. I also feel that they tend to put the "sidekick" way to much to the front in its movie. But in all fairness that trend was started in the Moore film.

I want my James Bond to be desired by women, not be adored by Raoul the hairdresser :-)

I might get Dr. No and From Russia With Love, I already own Casino Royale.
I'm not the biggest fan of Bond movies but I like the first ones with Sean Connery and did'nt like those with Lazenby, Dalton, Moore and I hated the Bond movies involving Pierce Brosman. I think Daniel Craig is the best thing to happen in this franchise since Sean Connery, IMO.

I'm getting the two-pack box set, but might sell off one or two if need be... for < $20 a movie, I'll try them all again, since I've never seen them in a theater-type environment.

I don't get the Dalton hate?

He's the tallest of the Bonds, he was certainly more physical than Moore or Brosnan and unlike some of the other Bond films, his stayed in real plots.

Until Casino Royale, The Living Daylights was my favorite Bond film.

Now what I will say about Dalton is that those films effectively "neutered" Bond as a rogue-ish sexual being, based on the times. Fortunately that was restored to the series, but that's no indication of Dalton's ability.

Not a bad idea considering buying single BDs of the movies you want is more expensive versus price per movie in a box. It depends on how they are packaged though to try to sell one.

Perhaps but not due to his physical size.

I'm getting the set with From Russia With Love, Thunderball, and For Your Eyes Only, plus Dr. No as a single. I think we're pretty lucky to be getting 3 Connerys in the first batch of 6.

I first saw Bond in the theaters when Roger Moore was Bond, so those will always be some of my favorites. I've mostly experienced the Connery films with the advent of DVD, but I have found them to be more enduring and timeless than most of the last 10 or so Bond films. I liked Brosnan, but thought the scripts he had to work with usually started to bog down after an hour. Although I kind of like The Living Daylights, Dalton just doesn't do it for me. I saw an interview with him on one of the DVDs and could see why - he just had no presence or charisma, at least in my opinion. I love the reboot of the franchise and Casino Royale is my favorite of all. I thought the dialog was so much better in CR than any other Bond and I've rewatched it more in a year and a half than any other 007 movie.

I asked this earlier in the thread, but didn't get any response... so here it goes again:

Does anyone know why the Bond titles aren't released in order? Why are they spread out? Doesn't make a lot of sense to me, I'd guess it's some kind of marketing ploy, but I'm wondering if there might be another reason.

all bonds is a waste, but many with connery are worth it and also 1-2 with moore.

You know LICENCE TO KILL was the only time I saw a Bond film and felt they were on a tight budget.

The story in itself is not bad, however i'll agree, it's not the best written story, nor are the ancillary characters that interesting.

I have the SE two disc set for "DAD". Got it for around $5.00 used. I can understand this one being low on totem pole but I enjoy it when I do watch it. If cheap enough, I'll go for the BD eventually on the used market more than likely.

I'm pretty sure it is DTS audio and the sound quality is quite good and the PQ is more than acceptable on the version I own.

Has there been talk about these BDs coming in a steelbook? I was looking at some promotional pictures, and the cases certainly look to be steelbook.
